Make a ruffled skirt peasant dress for your doll.

  1. You don’t have to make any changes to the pattern pieces!  Choose your fabrics, and cut out the front and back, short sleeves, and using the measurements for the Twirl Skirt, cut out the middle and lower tiered ruffles.
  2. Follow the pattern instructions to assemble the top.  Do not sew the hem.
  3. Follow the pattern instructions to hem and gather the lower tier and sew it to the middle tier.   With right sides together, sew your two tiers to the bottom edge of your top.
  4. The dress looks great with or without a belt or tie.

Gingham Peasant Dress Outfit Tutorial for Julie Albright- A BeForever Pattern Hack!

I’m really enjoying sewing for Julie Albright, the BeForever character from 1974.  I think I’m attracted to her collection because I was seven years old in 1974 and I had very similar things- like her purple coat (mine was blue) and the sneaker skates (mine were bright yellow with orange stripes).

When I saw THIS PIN, I just knew that this peasant style outfit would be easy to recreate with Oh Sew Kat! patterns. Be sure to follow my Julie board when you stop by my Pinterest page.

1970s doll dress skirt and top for Julie BeForever Doll

The top is simply the Playtime Peasant Top, sewn in white with long sleeves.  For the skirt, I used the overskirt that comes in the Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice bundle.  I cut the gingham fabric skirt longer by 4 1/2 inches, but didn’t make any other changes.  Add a little lace at the bottom, and ta da! A perfect, pretty bell skirt! Add a red or gingham ribbon to complete the look.  This outfit will be perfect for the Christmas holidays!

Playtime Peasant Top and Party Time Dress

Birdie Wright shared some adorable doll outfits with me that she made recently.  I design Oh Sew Kat! patterns to be easy and versatile. There are so many ways to make them!  She used both the Playtime Peasant Top and the Party Time Dress patterns to make these  outfits.

Birdie used the sleeves from the Playtime Peasant Top and a floor length skirt, and added pretty lace to the sleeves to make this sweet version of the Party Time Peasant Dress.

Here she used the Playtime Peasant Top with long sleeves (and pretty lace hems!) and used the Party Time back pieces to make her top open in back instead of a pull on item.

Both outfits are adorable, Birdie! I love the way you used the patterns to create just the look you wanted!  Thank you for sharing!  See more Peasant Tops and Party Dresses here and here.  Buy the patterns here and on YouCanMakeThis and on PixieFaire.  These patterns are also available sized for the Wellie Wishers and Disney Animators’ Dolls.
